    Once the black queen takes the white queen, it becomes white's move... White is not in check, but any move he makes will put him in check.  This is called Stalemate, and is considered a draw.

    No, it's a draw.  White forces a draw so he can't get checkmated.

    How was it stalemate? explain helpp

    Black's best move is to do queen-takes-queen.  But this is then a stalemate because white will not have any legal moves to make (but is also not in check or checkmate).

    This looked like deep play, but really it was simple. You're checkmated when you give up the initiative. So you are really making obvious moves, doing whatever you can to keep the initiative.

    But I didn't see the pinned pawn at ALL.

    So far, this is my favorite

    Wow, that's a really clever puzzle. It took me a minute to understand the concept behind the final move. I hadn't read the title, so I kept looking for checkmate. I read the title and figured it out though...

    Pawn g4 pinned, of course. I was looking for a move that would attract a piece on g5 in order to force the draw. Nice puzzle.
